Turns out, our long-term 528i is the last of its breed. For 2012, its 3.0-liter naturally aspirated inline-6 will be replaced by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with a twin-scroll turbocharger, direct injection and stop/start technology. Like our car, it'll produce 240 horses, but torque goes up to 260 pound-feet from 230. Fuel economy is already pretty strong with the six-cylinder at 22 mpg city/32 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined, but it should go up by 15 percent says BMW.
